OK, here's a bit of info.
Height - 166cm
Weight - 67.8kg early this morn (I thought I was 69 so must have lost some pretty recently)
BMI - 24.6 (giri giri in the normal range)
Ultimate goal - 59kg (might be easier to befriend a unicorn. We'll see.)
I want to lose weight, I want to lose the muffin top, but most of all I want to change my relationship with food. This is more for me about changing my lifestyle and the way I think about food rather than the numbers (weight, BMI) although of course I'd love to see those numbers drop.
I'm an emotional eater and I feel like it's time to take control of my life and stop letting food control me. Easier said than done perhaps but I'm happy to be here to give it a go!
For the past 10 years I have mostly fluctuated between 63kg and 68kg but have always had trouble getting clothes to fit, always had plenty of flab. Am the shortest and fattest in my family and growing up around skinny giants has definitely had a negative effect on my body image. Have not exercised much as an adult except for cycling a bit. Recently started a pilates class and hope that will make a difference and give me more motivation to get fit. My drug of choice is sugar and I drink way too much diet pepsi and no where near enough water. I don't make healthy food choices and my portion sizes are way too big. I'm not going to give up chocolate but I want to get to the point where I can eat one piece and feel satisfied, rather than guiltily eating a whole bar and then hating myself for it.
I had a baby 7 months ago and have lost all my pregnancy weight but I still look pregnant. Used to be pear shaped but now have a whole new tummy area so I guess I'm a hybrid apple/ pear. Ugh. Oh, and I'm breastfeeding and absolutely do not want to mess with my milk supply, so I will be very sensible about this. Cut out eating crap I don't need, drink more water, and exercise a whole lot more. Ganbaroー!
